Bruno Giacosa Barolo Le Rocche del Falletto Riserva 2001
One of Piedmont’s great names, Bruno Giacosa has been crafting aromatic, complex wines across the region for over 50 years. Now 15+ years old, ‘Le Rocche del Falletto’ 2001 oozes with secondary characteristics, showing earthy, floral notes of tar and red fruit. Pair with game and savory red meat.
This tartly tannic, headily fragrant, beguilingly complex king of Italian red grapes is brimming with bright fruit and earthy funk -- in versions ranging from explosive (Barolo) to ethereal (Valtellina).
